FP - The Fishtail socks


Today I have another pair of finished socks to share that never even made it to my WIP list as I finished them so quickly :)
Following my "success" of completing two pairs of socks in a short amount of time, I felt brave enough to design my own pair.
When I say designing, I mean that I have taken the general measurements for a medium sized sock, found myself a knitted pattern I liked (the fishtail) and worked the sock design around the pattern.
I made a slight mistake though in that the cuff on one sock is two rows shorter than the other....but I can live with that considering that the cuff will be hidden under trouser legs anyway.

You can find all the details about the Fishtail socks {here}

  1. I've definitely made one sock longer than the other about half the time I knit one at a time, no matter how intense I get about counting rows, which is why I prefer knitting them two at a time. Those look very pretty and comfy. Also, it is such a wonderful design, you should write this one up!

  4. Lovely! 2 rows difference in length is barely any difference at all. Nobody will start noticing until the difference is a matter of inches, I think.

    1. I think you are absolutely right, Leah. a couple of rows make no difference
